14th Asian Championship: Shooter Saurabh bags silver in 10m air pistol

The 17-year-old shot 244.5 to finish second on the podium behind North Korea’s Kim Song Guk, who won the gold with a world record 246.5.

Incidentally, the record he broke belonged to the Chaudhary who had shot 246.3 at an ISSF World Cup.

Chaudhary, a World Cup and Asian Games gold medallist, had a great start to the final and had a series of 10 and above scores but the North Korean raced away in the latter stages.

The Olympic quotas from this competition went to Iran, North Korea and Pakistan as India and China had already secured the maximum two quotas each.
